Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.Have I thanked you all lately? I know I'm an emotional wreck, and sometimes when I get done posting, I wonder if any of it even makes any sense or if it came out reading the same way it sounded in my head: like a long stream of thoughts all jumbled together tumbling out without control or finesse or cohesion or even coherence. Babble - all very necessary babble. God bless yas for wading through it daily.
~ Karl A. Menninger
Just the act of listening means more than you can imagine to most people.
